About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

It was 32 degrees with Sunshine here in Chaumont, NY this morning. It is supposed to be warm today, and that could mean a simple 45 degrees for this region (which is ten miles from thye Canadian border). Anyhow, the birds are chirping and it is pleasant.

Another wall photo. What caught my eye here? The shapes. The soft light. It's rather abstract.
I am an outdoors kind of guy. I love being outside, however, this morning I am stuck inside editing a photo shoot that I did last night for the NY state teacher's union. It's just not quite nice enogh for me to take my laptop outdoor to do the work. Later this afdternoon I am teaching guitar.

My mother appears to be recovering from her latest round of health issues. A large part of that is due to my daughter's selfless dedication to her grandmother. As an adolescent my daughter was nothing but trouble. It's taken her a lot of years to come around and today she is someone I am truly proud of. I must say she has blossomed in spite of the fact that I have been a less than ideal father.

It is peculiar how life unfolds, the comings and goings of everyone. The chance meetings and encounters and intertwining of lives and events. How one's fortunes (both monetary and otherwise) rise and fall. Build ups and let downs. I would love to sit here and flesh out my thoughts on this digital noetbook, but I NEED TO EDIT LAST NIGHT'S PHOTOS. I'm on deadline here!
